You might not guess it from that sweet, little face of his, but Andy can be a very bad boy when he wants to be. Today, it was refusal to be given his medication. Yeah, we (my brother and I) eventually caught him using the old Greenies treat method, but it was an hour-long process involving several strategic errors before that one moment Andy fell into my hands.
Giving Andy medicine takes seconds for administering the dose, but minutes to catch him. On good days (for me!), I just reach down and pick him up. This week,. though, Andy’s decided not to cooperate. Bad boy!
The bad feelings dissolve fast, though, and Andy and I return to our daily post-dose routines, Andy to watch birds out the back door and me to tell stories about the very bad kitty in my home. Best of all, Andy can’t present his side of the story!
